The University of Kentucky has established new tuition and fee schedules that will apply beginning in the Fall semester 2013. The PT Division and Dean's Office are working together to try to keep down the cost of the program for all students. The figures below are the most current available.
Based on 2013-2014 figures, the tuition and costs for residents and non-residents are listed below and are subject to change without notice. The numbers below were calculated from the professional doctorate tuition listed on the UK web site, June, 2012. The summer semester will be half the cost of the regular full time fall and spring semesters. The annualized tuition is the tuition per year ( 2 full time and one summer semester).
Annualized tuition for DPT program:
Resident - $17,470 per year
Non-resident - $39,350 per year (This is BEFORE grants are allotted for eligible non-resident students)
Out of State Grants
The Division of Physical Therapy offers a select number of grants designed to enable a small number of highly qualified non-resident matriculants to receive financial assistance which lessens the disparity between resident and non-resident tuition. This program is similar to one used in the Graduate School as a way to broaden the reach of the academic program. Click here for more information regarding these grants.
